  1. Yeah I would be up for this. Any idea when this is likely to run.
  2. So my putty arrived today, have never used this before So will try this on the model tomorrow and see how it turns out. Hve to admit I am still not feeling the love again for modelling, but I may just need to get that first one complete and it see the end results. Fingers crossed.
  3. Hooray, it's beginning to look a lot like an aeroplane Can see a few areas that need some filler. Waiting on that arriving,so will get the upper wings on tomorrow
  4. Taking shape. Not sure I like this method of construction, but will see how it goes.
  5. Undercarriage bays, and radiator
  6. Came here from your post in my WIP. Very nice. Will be happy if mine turns out to that standard.
  7. Pedals and control column And instrument panel. The decal for this seemed really thick. 10 minutes in warm water and it still didn't want to come away from the backing. I am hoping this isn't how all the decals are going to be. Used some microsol to help but it ended up sitting a bit skew whiff, and with the thickness of it wasn't easy to manipulate and get sitting right.
  8. Lol, I wouldn't be comparing my abilities, they are nothing to brag about that's for sure. But am enjoying it, though I have definitely lost the knack. Interior sort of coming along, dirty grimy and worn. Certainly not accurate colours I would think, but its all going to disappear once the fuselage is joined anyway.
  9. So I did make a start on this today. First mistake I forgot to wash the sprues. When I tried to begin to paint, it wouldn't stay on for love nor money. So quick wash and try again. Really haven't done much at all, just some interior sections. Following the instructions although I am sure the inside of the radiator intake should be camo and not interior green. But at this scale it probably won't show up much anyway.
  10. So this is going to be my first build back after a 5 to 6 year hiatus due to health issues. It will be an OOB build and I imagine progress will be fairly slow as I Re learn techniques and the best way of working that suits me. I am not going to get too hung up on details, as long as it comes out looking like a Tiffy I will be happy. Will be brush painted with a mix of Tamiya, Revell and Humbrol acrylics.
  11. Replies like this are what I remember this forum being like. Helpful friendly and a great community. Thanks again guys for the kind words and war welcome. Managed to get my stuff together and set up on a table in the spare room.
  12. Thank you guys. Have enjoyed looking back through pages of RFI and WIP threads over the last couple of days. I think I have managed to revive some of the acrylic paints too
  13. The thing that annoys me is the lack of functionality in the apps. Can't seem to get blogger to work on my phone. Can take the photo, upload it. But can't hotlink, haha. Figured it out
  14. Thanks Tony. I appreciate the offer and am going to take a trip to Hobby craft today. Most of my paints etc have dried up, so basically everything is required. If I still need anything I will let you know, as is do remember how expensive this can be. Most of the cost comes with the things to make the models, they themselves are quite cheap really.
  15. So I made a return to modelling back in 2013 and 2014 and was really enjoying it. Some may remember some of my posts, working in 1/72 scale and brush painting. Unfortunately having looked all of my photos are gone due to Photobucket debacle. A period of illness and a lot of subsequent suffering with my depression meant I didn't keep the modelling up. Recently a friend showed me some of his Gunpla models and that made me rethink the hobby. So I had a quick look in my cupboards and found I have these in the stash
